In Case You Missed It – Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors


If you had plans to go fishing at Walt Disney World, you should now know that you need to leave your pole at home! Following the recent alligator attack, fishing is forbidden unless it’s a part of a Disney-sanctioned excursion.

Is this how they are going to bring the world of Pandora to life? Seems like it’s possible.

The latest random Guardians of the Galaxy attraction rumor…it could be taking over Ellen’s Energy Adventure. At least it’s a better fit than Tower of Terror was for Walt Disney World. It’s still one where I’ll believe it when I see it.

Uniqlo will open officially on July 15.

Disney is planning to go cage-free with their eggs by the end of 2016.

D23 will be holding a spooky soiree at Tower of Terror in October! It sounds like it will be a night to remember.

Could Disneyland Paris get a revamp to their Space Mountain to Hyperspace Mountain?

Finding Dory just keep swimming! The film has crossed the $300 million mark domestically, which is the fastest animated movie to do so!

Did you know that the original voice of Nemo has a great cameo in Finding Dory. (Spoilers for those who haven’t seen the film.)

This is great! Watch the evolution of Pixar all in one fantastic video! It includes films, as well as shorts.

Oh Dick Van Dyke!  I want to be as spry as you if I’m lucky enough to hit 90! See him perform “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” this past weekend at Walt Disney’s childhood Chicago home.

Will you be seeing The BFG this weekend? Steven Spielberg talks about how creating this film was a dream come true.

According to TripAdvisor, Islands of Adventure was named as the number 1 amusement park in the U.S. and the world for the second consecutive year.
